My head is exploding. I have never seen so many drooling idiots in one place. When the Congressman claimed he voted for the war in Afghanistan and Iraq, there were loud cheers all around. The Congressman proceeded to call for killing those who needed to be killed. Lots of cheering. :wtf:I came in at the end of some speech he made about health care and a big fat, sweaty guy claimed that if we got national health care it would be like his nephew in New Zealand, who got a rotator cuff injury and had to wait nine months to see a doctor. Then he proceeded to rail on all the fraud in Medicare, a program that he no doubt benefits from. The Congressman told him he should report Medicare fraud if he saw it, which started people shouting. Why he didn't call that person a liar or at least ask him if he had any documentation to present about the anecdotal allegations against the New Zealand health care system, I am mystified. Every time someone said something they didn't agree with the shouting started again. I had to turn it off.

My deepest condolences to our Mississippi DUers. Oh, mama mia, what you have to put up with!
